I'm getting my car back tomorrow; I'll certainly let you know how everything is.
Sounds good, they have success with E46 generations, not so much with E9X's.

Well I'm crossing my fingers they've had some good experience since your encounter with them. Regardless, I am extremely excited. My pre-lci xenons w/ mtec's were getting stale

It's due to the E46 headlights being simple to open... The E9X requires baking open then being baked close. If not done properly, you will get condensation in your headlights.

Route 16 is not the only one with issues. Almost everyone who had their depo retrofits done complain about a mix of condensation, poor workmanship and malfunctions. Stuff like misaligned projectors that cannot be straightened etc. Given the complexity, I would definitely try OSS, BavX or lightwerkz. Oneeighty customs is good too. Umnitza can't really be trusted.

Also, how come you are not doing the v4's? Umnitza said they have them for our cars. The ones in the pic look super bright already. what are they?
